Canada is a country that is well known to tourists but some practical advice and information is always useful to help prepare a trip!
For trips to Canada of less than 90 days Europeans only need a valid passport, a return air ticket and the money necessary to fund their stay. From March 2016 visitors who don't need a visa will be required to get an eTA (electronic Travel Authorisation) which costs CA$7 and is valid for 5 years or until your passport expires (whichever comes first). The eTA is completed online and should help you to go through customs more quickly as you will avoid being questioned by the Customs Officers at the frontier.
You don't need to take any particular precautions for travelling in Canada. You should take out medical insurance, because medicine and hospital treatments are expensive in Canada. For more information you can look at the government website.
For international calls Canada uses 001. The internet and Wifi are available everywhere, just like in the UK.
